You’ve probably heard of the hot chocolate bomb, the latest hot cocoa trend, or the hot chocolate trend. These are molded shapes of chocolate (typically round) that can be filled with almost anything you want. The easiest way to make hot chocolate is to melt it in a cup of warm milk. Enjoy a warm, cozy cup of hot chocolate!
These are the best hot chocolate bombs we’ve seen this holiday season. We love to see how everyone takes the idea and makes it their own! Hot chocolate bombs are a great holiday gift idea! Get in touch with your local chocolatier. You can support small businesses by placing your order early, so you don’t get disappointed.
Kate Weiser Chocolate
Hot chocolate bombs are only complete with Carl the Snowman. He was created by Kate Weiser and first appeared on the hot chocolate bomb scene in 2014. Carl is a chocolate snowman with a full belly of drinking chocolate mix and a full head of marshmallows that melt in a cup of milk. Please read our blog post to learn more about Carl’s creation and shipping challenges. Kate’s plans for shipping and packaging Carl changed as he grew, especially since he was named one of Oprah’s favorite things! See our second blog post on Carl here.

The glittery design of Veruca’s chocolate ornaments is just too beautiful to eat. The inside contains a mix of milk and dark chocolate. It can make 1 to 2 cups, depending on how thick your hot chocolate is.
